The Big Skinny: How I Lost My Fattitude (Villard)
Cartoonist Carol Lay's work has appeared in a weekly strip for the LA Weekly, as well as in The Village Voice, Entertainment Weekly, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, Mad Magazine, Worth, and others, as well as several previous books.

Around the time Carol turned 50, she realized she had been fat since she was a teenager and didn't want to be that way any longer. She examined methods of weight reduction that had worked for her in the past and outlined a plan for herself that she started following with newfound resolve. Success in reaching her goal and keeping off the excess weight for several years made her want to share her experience with everyone, so she naturally started putting that experience and information into comic form, resulting in this book!
